i'll say this, if i had had live tapes of JA back in the day (in the same manner of GD tapes), they would be my most-listened to band of all-time; and definitely are as far as studio recordings, i have most every original LP, and JA was the only band i ever bought a 'box-set' of music of (until the GD's E72); it's also the only band from that era where my interest and listening to has never went into hibernation (as it has with the GD), i still listen to JA regularly, the greatest band from that locale and era bar none

I have a couple reel-to-reel tapes, one marked 12/16/66 set 2 and one marked 12/17/66 set 1. Don't know speed or format or condition, but these do come from a source close to the band (ex-wife of one of the members). I'd be glad to send these to anyone who would like to see if the recordings can be recovered... PM me or follow up here if you're interested...

charles, alas i do not have the capability or equipment to work with reel-to-reel, but it's possible that you could at least query Charlie Miller (he has worked on JA sources in the past), and i assure you, he is a trusted name for handling these sorts of endeavors, or he at least will likely steer you in the right direction if he cannot commit to the project; you can email him at:

charliemiller87@earthlink.net

personally, i think it would be more than great to see those sources in circulation, and many many would be thrilled, myself included

please do not let the music die...

"the greatest band from that locale and era bar none"

only because Moby Grape couldn't survive the management/ego/psychoses problems

I'm going to agree.The interplay between Grace and Marty was fantatic.Paul on the Rickenbaker for rythem, Jorma one of the best electric double finger pickers around and Jack more than likely to get the nod for best bass player. Add all that up and you get energy that's rarely heard and if Grace is not blitzed on alcohol most shows were winners.I also saw them at the band shell Central Park,Fillmore East,in the fields spring weekend at SUNY NEW PALTZ,then much later The Starship coming out concert at Winterland where Marty came on late in the show to sing Miricles.Sept.75 opening for the Dead in GGPARK.

no disrespect meant to JA, I loved them as well and Grace looked better than any of the MG boys..or the GD boys for that matter

their first 2 efforts were stellar and showed much promise. After that it was all downhill.

the first:

the second was a double album Wow - strictly MG studio album -

Saw them at the Fillmore East. Incredibly powerful and moving performance. Entire theater was up, dancing in the aisles and on the seats and on the backs of the seats!

Bless their pointed little heads. Best live band I ever had the pleasure of seeing.

Whenever possible.
Their space in my music and ticket stub collection is only exceeded by the GD.

Huge fan. I kind of got into the Dead backwards. In jr high it was ac/dc ozzy then onto Rush then got introduced to the weed and led zeppelin and finally bob dylan. Always loved the Beatles. Then saw Woodstock on pbs and fell in love with Country Joe and the Fish. Both the combination of humor and liberal politics and of course pot. Then when i discovered LSD it went hand in hand with the Airplane. Became a massive fan even diving in to all the great Starship/Kantner projects and of course became a huge Hot Tuna fan. All this before i finally figured out why the Grateful Dead had such a lasting reputation. I wish there were way more recording of the Airplane from the Bless it's pointed Little head era. More has come out ( like the golden gate park 69 show ) but not nearly enough
